Mitchell Wormall will be one of the busiest drivers at the USA vs WA Sprintcar Muster on New Year’s Day at Perth Motorplex, contesting both the Sprintcar Speedweek and the 360 Sprintcar division on the same night.
It is not the first time that the 19 year old Mundijong driver has done double duty, as he continues to develop his racecraft and objective of being a competitive racer in both divisions.
A busy race schedule, that included driving in America and Darwin during the WA off-season, has paid off as he has already won a couple of 360 Sprintcar feature races since October, as well as looking strong in the open class where he will face Team USA once more.
Wormall said the international series would be a great experience.
“In WA there’s not a lot of big racers who come over here and race against us so I think bringing over a couple of Americans is going to hype up the sport a little bit and hopefully get more people involved,” he said.
Wormall said last season was one of ups and downs but said he finished on a high note in what he described as a ‘learning season’. He plans to keep moving forward and keep a clear head when he is racing learning to make smarter moves.
“America was crazy, some of the tracks are a lot smaller than what we have over here,” he said.
“Everyone gives that little bit more respect and you can race so close against other people. It taught me how to race cleaner, in close to people, so hopefully when it comes to us racing the smaller tracks here in Australia, we can do a bit better.”
